It’s not too late to make this gorgeous quilt. Jen of Patterns by Jen designed a beautiful medallion quilt that I couldn’t resist. You can purchase the pattern from Jen’s shop any time. You might choose to use the same Enchanted Forest flannels from Northcott that Jen used or forge your own path. I opted to shop my stash for a scrappy monochromatic quilt. Did you read the post about choosing a scrappy palette?
Borders #5, #7, & #9
I prepared all of the “solid” borders in advance, so all I needed to do was find the right sizes and put them on. What a relief, since I had all those stars to make!
Do be sure to cut the borders to size before sewing, rather than sewing them on and trimming to fit. Pin your borders before you stitch them on–pin the center and the ends, then every six inches or so in between, easing in any excess fabric to avoid pleats. Stitch slowly and press carefully in the direction indicated on the pattern.
I kind of started to question my fabric choices here, but I plowed ahead anyway. I’m glad I did! Thank goodness my design wall was free so I could lay everything out for placement. Using the Wing Clipper I makes short work of all those flying geese.
Hooray, hooray! I’m all caught up, and absolutely LOVING how these fabrics are all playing together. I’m getting excited about finishing this quilt, how about you?
